Silence will not be our currency. I hope that a new generation of readers like yourself can see that you are not just bearers of the burdens of history, but beneficiaries of a new awareness.
--Senator Murray Sinclair

Based on a true story. A school assignment to interview a residential-school Survivor leads Daniel to Betsy, his friend's grandmother, who tells him her story. Abandoned as a young child, Betsy was soon adopted into a loving family. A few short years later, at the age of 8, everything changed. Betsy was taken away to a residential school. There she was forced to endure abuse and indignity, but Betsy recalled the words her father spoke to her at Sugar Falls--words that gave her the resilience, strength and determination to survive.
